Why would someone sell everything they own, pull roots, and travel for three years around the world alone… on a motorcycle? Allan Karl answers this and much more in FORKS: A Quest for Culture, Cuisine, and Connection, a book that brings worldwide adventure to your table. And we mean adventure… Allan experienced being walked into the Colombian jungle at gunpoint, having to beg for a visa to enter Sudan, and crashing his bike and crushing his leg badly in Bolivia. It’s all intertwined with over 700 color photos and 40 global recipes!
